Bob Bradley quotes

On selecting the 30-man preliminary roster for the 2010 FIFA World Cup:
“We feel we’ve put a very good group together. Obviously a lot goes into qualification and many players are involved. It’s not always easy to get down to 30, but we feel very good about the group we have. As a staff, we did everything to continue to watch games, assess players and look at situations that involved injuries. We needed to make sure we had full information and again we have been very thorough in being sure we’re on top of each situation. Therefore the work has been quite good.”

On what the toughest decisions were in making decisions about choosing the roster:
“To be fair, there are tough decisions in all aspects of the process. We have tremendous respect for players who have contributed in the past. We also take into account so many players that are playing well week in and week out for their clubs that haven’t had the chance to play with the national team. It’s a goal and a dream of every player to represent the United States in the World Cup. So, when you go about the process of putting a roster together, we understand and respect what everybody has put into it along the way.”

On what Edson Buddle and Herculez Gomez did to earn a spot on the preliminary roster:
“Both Edson and Herculez have had a very good season. Both have helped their teams a great deal. Edson has been the hottest goal scorer in MLS and has helped the Galaxy get off to a great start. Herculez was an important player with Puebla and scored a lot of goals. We feel that both of them have shown enough for us to take a look at them as we start the camp.”

On José Torres and his club commitments overlapping with a portion of the training camp:
“We will continue to monitor the next series obviously between Pachuca and Toluca. Those games are both scheduled on the 12th and 15th (of May) and then we’ll assess the situation following that series.”
